drying out friday with sunny skies for your saturday. so at least the first half of the weekend is looking fine in terms of getting out and about. partly cloudy tomorrow as this system comes through here. it will just bring us extra clouds. so your sun will get filtered. it is not going to be a bright day. here is what happens. a cold storm is not influenced by el nino and will kick up the winds. thursday morning we expect breezy conditions and the wind gets going at 7:00 a.m. it is getting gusty around 30 to 35 miles an hour. as the winds pick up you will have to be a little careful. especially if you are out and about running errands. 35 to 40 miles an hour late morning still gusty and then as we head toward the afternoon hours the winds will ease up a bit. the winds could take down the power lines and a few trees especially if they are weakened and dry from the recent drought. be aware of your surroundings and also if you have holiday decorations up, you will want to tie those down.
look at the time line of the rain. 7:00 a.m. thursday and we are just looking at cloud cover. 10:00 a.m. is when we start to see moderate to heavy rain moving into the north bay. 11:00 a.m. it is moving to the east bay. by noon pretty much everyone is getting wet in the bay area. 2:00 p.m., still looking at moderate rain to heavy rain and you can't rule out a slight chance of a thunderstorm. by 5:00 p.m. some scattered showers for the evening rush and those light showers will wind down as we head toward the latter part of the evening. our highest totals will be up in the sonoma county area. half an inch to an inch possible in the santa clara valley. a 10th to a quarter of an inch. this will mean snow in the mountains. tahoe will be under a winter weather advisory. the snow level will be dropping down to 5,000 and take a look at some of the snowfall for the resorts. we are looking at half a foot to a foot of snow.
strong winds will accompany the system. if you are thinking of going to the mountains you may want to hold off until friday. first thing in the morning the cloud cover will be heavy, mid30s to the upper 40s. so it is not the chill we have been experiencing. and then for the afternoon milder weather. the cloud cover is heaviest to the north. a little less to the south. 61 san francisco and 65 santa rosa. oakland 64 and livermore and san jose and san mateo and as you check out the accu-weather seven-day forecast we go from mild wednesday to wet and windy thursday. dry on friday and saturday. if you have holiday shopping to do, sunday a slight chance of some showers in the north bay. we repeat that again on monday. that system is looking weaker and weaker and it may entirely miss us and go to the north. ama and dan? >> thank you, sandhya. >> well, still ahead here on abc7 news at 11:00, stuck in the mud. >> the help that was needed to get this

scene at the famous kruger national park in south africa. a baby elephant probably 10 weeks or so got stuck in a watering hole. >> the young mother tried and tried to get the baby out, but didn't seem to have the strength or the experience to do it. that went on for several minutes. >> i watch closely on the right. an older and larger elephant rushes over and uses its trunk to pull the baby to safety. isn't that sweet? that's one of the remarkable things about elephants. they are a family and community oriented. they really are. they stick together. time to turn our attention to sports. >> cute picture. >> come on, kid. in a couple years you will be able to do this. the warriors are going for their 20th straight win tomorrow night, but how many wins does luke walton have? he is honored as coach of the month with a record of

brought to you by xfinity. >> officially luke walton's record is 0-0, but that was good enough to win him western conference coach of the month honors. the interim coach has lead them to a 19-0 record but because of strange book keepings they belong to steve kerr. they have gone for their 20th straight win and that is tomorrow night in charlotte. walton is subbing for kerr who is still sidelined by headaches following back surgery. what happens if walton leaves them with the best record at the allstar break? does he coach the allstar team? who knows? he is not worried about the individual glory though. >> winning coach of the month is an honor, but to me it is more of a reflection of what team is set up here and what our players, the way our
players approach the game, and their willingness to do whatever it takes to win. >> kobe bryant is playing his final game in philadelphia and announced his retirement. he came out on fire and you are thinking don't retire. that's okay. finished 7 of 26 for 20 points. sixers are winnless and frustrated. grant shoving hibbert. 14 points and throwing it down hard. grant here with authority. the sixers spoil kobe and post their first win of the year. philly is now 1-18. cal has a contract extension on the table for sonny dykes, but it may not be enough to keep him here. he is 15 and 23. it is not great by any means. but he brought the program up from the bottom to the middle of the pack. it is not leak you see them winning it anytime soon. he is probably a better fit in a smaller market down south or in texas.
but the next move is up to sonny. how about the cal hoops team. trying to get back on track against seattle u. cal should crush these guys, but it was tight. behind the back and all the way with the left hand. 13 or three of 13 shooting. finished with 11 points. cal lead by eight at the half. they were down three in the half. the steal and the finish with the right hand. wallace's first double-double of the year. 17 points and 11 boards. cal comes from behind to win it and they are now 5-2. to the ice and the sharks are hosting the pittsburgh penguins. two and a half minutes in and kessel from behind the goal line and banked it off the foot of paul martin and past martin jones. 1-0 penguins. two more goals from behind the net. he hits it off the foot of jones and it ricochets in. then two minutes after that on
the wrap around and it is another goal. his 12th of the year. the struggles continue as they fall by a final of 5-1. abc7 sports is brought to you by xfinity. >> thanks, larry. >> abc7 news does continue on-line, on twitter, facebook, and all of your mobile devices with the abc7 news app. >> our next
